Christmas blog hop…

 

 

 

Morning everyone, how are you today?

It’s a while since the Lili of the Valley DT did a blog hop, so today, well overdue, it’s time to showcase the new Christmas products! As always we have loads of ideas for you and a fabulous prize up for grabs!

 

The new stamps and papers go on sale at midnight on Friday (August 1st) There are 22 cute new images, 5 clear stamp sets and 4 festive paper pads…  you’re gonna love them all!

 

The full design team is joining in the fun, you need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave feedback on each card

We don’t know where the prizes are hidden so be sure to visit and comment on each one, the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on 2 ‘lucky’ blogs

***

There is a full set of the new Christmas image stamps up for grabs, we’ve split it into 2 amazing prizes;

1st prize is the 12 angels, penguins and snowmen

2nd prize is the 10 vintage children

 

Here’s a list of the blogs that are taking part in the hop, you should have come here from the Lili of the Valley blog…

I used this adorable stamp called Skating Friends, I coloured the image to match the papers which are from the new Snow Princess pads (I used both patterned and solids)

The sentiment is from the Christmas Wishes set, these stamps will be a must have for all your seasonal greetings

 

July hop christmas

 

July hop christmas 3

 

 July hop christmas 2 

 

The dies are DooHickey poinsettia and slender firs

It’s hard to see on the pictures but I went round the edge with a small snowflake stamp in Adirondack ‘Cool Peri’ ink, it’s quite pale but is a perfect match for these papers

Some diamantes and stickles to finish off (I can’t resist!)

Next stop is the lovely Becky, I’m sure she’s made something gorgeous to show you, and if you get lost along the way just go back to the start and pick up the links again

 

Don’t forget to pop back tomorrow evening, I’ll announce the names of the prize winners before the new products go on sale

Good luck!

I can't skate at all I had lessons well a lesson and the instructor said I was a lost cause and shouldn't return I did make him fall down which didn't do his ego any good and ended up in A and E myself with torn knee ligaments so although getting on for 30 years ago I can still relate to this image . fab card love the colours and I'm safer sticking to crafting so I'm keeping my fingers and everything else crossed and hoping I'm lucky.
